"I do remember exposing and developing a B&W 126 film cartridge then enlarging and glazing the print's in the school darkroom back in 1972"
But I really started using photography as a creative outlet in 1984, when I bought my first 35mm camera a Zenit TTL, back in my home town of Romford in Essex. I then converted our garage into a darkroom, for processing my black & white film exposures, and printing the results with an LPL enlarger at that time.Then upgrading my kit in 1985 to the new Nikon F301 with a 70~200 f4 lens, then going on the the fully manual Bronica etrs medium format camera and 75mm f2.8 lens. In 1990 I found what I think was the best camera I have ever used the fully manual Nikon~NIKOMAT~FTN with a 50mm F1.4 lens.
Example below of my photograpy and home darkroom printing from 1990

I started freelancing in the autumn of 1995, Having some local newspaper publications and Working full-time as a freelance photographer, using commercial lab's to develop and print my work. I was shooting wedding's/event's, newborn's/children also shooting university graduation ceremonies and graduation portraits, throughout the U.K's universities Using 35mm format and 120 roll film, with 35mm 6x4.5 6x6 and 6x7 medium format cameras, untill I stopped shooting in 2003, as film photography was swept away by the new digital format. Now shooting in digital and using it as a creative outlet, I am once again back in love with photography, shooting as a hobby on a T.F.P collaboration basis. Im now based in gloucester, GL2 area with a home studio. I'm also up for location shoot's.
